THE Sue Ryder charity shop in Wellington has reopened its doors after closing suddenly in July.

The store closed around three months ago, blaming 'unforeseen circumstances.'

The premises underwent 'essential repairs' with a spokesperson for the firm saying they were needed to address health and safety concerns. Commenting at the time they said:

"The health and safety of our shop staff, volunteers and shoppers is of the upmost importance to us, which is why the shop will remain closed until we feel satisfied it is safe to reopen."

The works were predicted to last two months, but dragged on for a further month before the store reopened on Monday, October 16.

Sue Ryder is a charity which supports people with terminal illness, neurological conditions and grief.
